Google Settings

Sometimes, you might reach an API limit when using the following functionality:

  • Generate Nearby Cities
  • Google Maps
  • YouTube Videos

To resolve this, you’ll need to define some one-time Google settings.

  • Visit https://console.developers.google.com/apis/library
  • On the top right hand corner, click the dropdown and then select Create a project
    Page Generator Pro: Google Settings: 1
  • Enter your web site name, and click Create
    Page Generator Pro: Google Settings: 2
  • Search for the YouTube Data API v3, and click on it in the search results.
    Page Generator Pro: Google Settings: 3
  • Click the Enable button
  • Search for the Google Maps Geocoding API, and click on it in the search results.
  • Click the Enable button
  • Search for the Google Maps JavaScript API, and click on it in the search results.
  • Click the Enable button
  • Click on the Credentials tab on the left of the screen
    Page Generator Pro: Google Settings: 4
  • Click on Create credentials > API key
    Page Generator Pro: Google Settings: 5
  • Click on Server key
    Page Generator Pro: Google Settings: 6
  • Set the Name = YouTube, and click Create
    Page Generator Pro: Google Settings: 7
  • Make a note of the API key, and click OK
  • Click on Create credentials > API key
  • Click on Server key
  • Set the Name = Google Maps Geocoding, and click Create
  • Make a note of the API key, and click OK
  • Click on Create credentials > API key
  • Click on Browser key
  • Set the Name = Google Maps, and click Create
  • Make a note of the API key, and click OK

Finally, we need to enter these three API keys into Page Generator Pro:

  • In your WordPress Administration interface, navigate to Page Generator Pro > Settings
    Page Generator Pro: Google Settings: 8
  • Click the Google tab, and enter each API key for the corresponding setting:
    Page Generator Pro: Google Settings: 9
  • Google Maps API: Disable JS Library: If you receive browser console messages similar to “You have included the Google Maps API multiple times on this page. This may cause unexpected errors”, another Plugin or Theme already loads the Google Maps Library. Tick this option to disable this Plugin from loading the Google Maps Library again.
  • Click Save
